How it works
Clonazepam belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.
- Clonazepam works by increasing the activity of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). This is a chemical that sends signals throughout your nervous system. If you don’t have enough GABA, your body may be in an excited state.
This may cause you to have panic attacks or seizures. When you take this drug, you’ll have more GABA in your body. This will help you have fewer panic attacks and seizures.
